Try a e-pl5 with a 75-300, you hardly get 2stops!

Like I said, everyone is different, some get 1 stop, some get 2 or 3 stops. Naturally that old film rule assumes standing with good hand-holding method and no wind. Other than that, anything can happen.

My guess is that if I can reliably manage 3 stops better with 150mm then 3 stops with 300mm would be normal. The minimum speed rule for 300mm on M4/3 bodies means that unstabilised 1/600 sec, and 1/60 sec stabilised for Pens prior to E-P5.
